Gibson's Les Paul Standard LE Series has bold new colors

The rich, deep hues of Gibson USA's Les Paul Limited Edition Series come alive with the "flame" of a maple top. New finishes include Manhattan Midnight, Pacific Reef, and Santa Fe Sunrise. The elegant setting of white body binding and ebony fingerboard with trapezoid inlays enhances the effect.

"The Limited Edition guitars are truly the jewels of the Les Paul Standard family," says Henry Juszkiewicz, Gibson Chairman and CEO. "The new colors and upgraded appointments rev up a classic Gibson body, giving it a fresh, exciting look."

Distinctive appearance features of the Limited Edition Series include a 1950s or 1960s-styled neck, nickel hardware, and metal button Kluson tuners. It comes with a hard case. MSRP: $3,299 USD.
